Where will I learn?

Learn in a realistic training environment

Fires can occur almost anywhere within the workplace, so, why not learn in a realistic environment which includes a staff room with kitchenette and office environment; no more having to imagine a fictitious setting!

Whether discussing potential risks or taking part in a scenario with smoke and simulated fire, the realistic nature of the environment aides the learning process as well as making for more active and engaging training.

What equipment will I use?

Learn using modern and sophisticated equipment

At The Practical Training Hub, it isn’t just the venue that’s cutting edge. A selection of simulated injures, technology and fire rigs as well as actors can be utilised to create an even more practical, engaging and beneficial training session.

Learning about fire and especially how to put it out without actually having the opportunity to do it is like learning to surf using online videos, you might understand the theory, however, you can’t understand the ‘feel’ of what is required.

What will i learn

During this course, attendees will be provided with knowledge related to fire safety in the workplace, including the need for
safe evacuation and specifically:

  • Understand the hazards and risks associated with fire in the workplace
  • Know how to use a range of fire controls
  • Understand the importance of a prompt and safe evacuation of the workplace

Training can also be tailored to a business’s specific set-up around aspects such as what equipment you use, the type of materials you regularly deal with and which fire safety equipment you have on-site.

All fire courses can include the opportunity to experience tackling a real fire with live fire extinguishers; all under the control of an experienced trainer.
